and they will, too.

Actually, scratch that. Kundratek is dressing, Sarge! is! sitting!, we will probably win going away, simply for that one change alone.

Ted is too busy to evaluate his two failed general managers. He's too busy over at Groupon making sure that anything associated with guns is taken down.

Bench Mojo, move Ovi back to the LW and let Fehr play the right side.

Fehr on the 1st line posts. I feel like I've time traveled back to 2009.

If we tank, no better year to do it. Only 46 games to suffer instead of 80. Plus the cup is mega tainted since it's a short season.

Shed all fat, come into next season with MacKinnon, Forsberg, Smid. Deal Green to Minnesota for Setoguchi, their 1st and one of their defensemen. Laich and our grinders for Kulemin and McClemment. Johansson + for O'Reilly. Get Tallinder or Volchenkov on the cheap and sign Lydman

Ovechkin Backstrom Perry
Kulemin MacKinnon Setoguchi
Brouwer O'Reilly Forsberg
Chimera McClemment Ward

Alzner Carlson
Lydman Volchenkov/Tallinder
Smid Orlov
7th D who is an ok PMD like Diaz

Holtby
Neuvirth

It would totally work.

They've tried Mojo, Hendy and Wolski already and it's only the 2nd game

How would we get MacKinnon though?

And I totally disagree with getting O'Reilly. And Corey Perry will be resigned. Kundratek looks to be a future defenseman possibly paired up with Orlov if they put a veteran D aside Green. Which they should.

Hendricks and Wolski each had like 3 or 4 shifts. That hardly counts. Give Wolski a full game on that line and see what happens. He looked sharp tonight, and the first line looked better than they did all game during the shifts he took with them.

That's the point of tanking is it not? Get the highest pick out there?

I can see Perry testing the market at least. O'Reilly makes sense on too many levels. We need a Richards/Kesler/Bergeron/Zajac/Pavelski type C and he's the closest realistically available.

Best list I could come up with by this year by making some moves:

Ovechkin, Backstrom, Wolski
Brouwer, Ribeiro, Johansson
Setoguchi, Beagle, Laich (occasional switch on Center)
Crabb, Hendricks, Ward

Alzner, Carlson
Leopold, Green
Orlov, Kundratek

Holtby
Neuvirth

-----------------------------
Trades:

Jason Chimera, Jeff Schultz, 2nd round pick to Buffalo

for

Jordan Leopold, Defenseman

-----------------------------
Mathieu Perreault, Mattias Sjogren, 1st round pick to Minnesota

for

Devin Setoguchi (this one's pushing it though, but could pass with Parise now there)

----------------------------
The next year's lineup:

Ovechkin, Backstrom, Wolski
Forsberg, Ribeiro, Johansson
Setoguchi, Beagle, Laich
Brouwer, Hendricks, Wilson/Random plug

Alzner, Carlson
Leopold, Green
Orlov, Kundratek

Solve the goalie issue, trade either Holtby or Neuvirth for a veteran goaltender and go from there.

I have to agree on your Poti assessment. It's short of a miracle that he's come back and played the way that he has. Whereas, I've been a believer in Mike Green, however after the first few minutes of last nights game I stopped believing. He is the tin man out their. He has no heart, he might have the talent/skills, but he does his best to avoid the physical side of the game. If there was a way we could move him and Perreault to Montreal for Subban I'd do it in a nano second. I'm sure it would take more than Green and Perreault though to get Subban.

Not bad for someone who was written off in absolute terms for the past year as never being able to play competitive hockey again.

Can't really fault Green for shying away from contact. When he takes a clean hit, he tends to miss the next 30 games.

Nonsense. He's a risk taker, I've seen photos of him driving his Vespa on E Street in D.C.. Talk about throwing caution to the wind.

Green, things I'm not afraid of:
Lasik Eye Surgery
Tatoo Needle
Operating a Vespa downtown D.C.

Green, things I'm afraid of:
Hockey players
